Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

Jhene Aiko Unwraps Gift In Honor Of Tupac's Birthday/ Talks On Her Earliest Memory Of Tupac?

On social media, many have been celebrating what would've been Tupac's 44th birthday. Singer, Jhene Aiko paid homage to the rapper, by recreating three of his most iconic pictures with photographer, Danny Williams.

The singer spoke with 'MTV,' about the photoshoot, where the singer was asked when she became aware of who Tupac was, where she got the inspiration for this photoshoot, and what was the singer's earliest memory of the rapper.

The singer shared that she had became an instant fan of the rapper, when watching his documentary, "Resurrection" saying, "I remember getting home from watching that and just feeling so inspired and I wrote this long journal entry about how inspired I was and motivated. I was so in awe of his story that I just dove in. I got books and I tried to find everything about Tupac. I started watching all the interviews, I started becoming obsessed and it wasn’t about the music at that point. It was about him as a person and what he did as far as aside from music."

Jhene Aiko also shares that her favorite song by the rapper was 'Keep Ya Head Up,' saying in an interview years ago, that she had heard it on the radio when she pregnant with her daughter saying, "I just cried like never before. His words meant so much to me. I just felt like I needed to hear that. I didn’t know what was going to happen next.”

Jhene Aiko definitely went all out, as for recapturing his pictures. The singer says that she wasn't trying to channel the rapper when doing this photoshoot, but wanted to really capture her love for Tupac. This is definitely a stand-out way of showing her appreciation. It was actually very spot-on as well. "Don’t forget about Tupac, don’t forget about Biggie, don’t forget about these amazing people that taught us these things," the singer says.

Well Done Jhene!
